Favorite Quote:
"Impossible is just a big word, thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Its an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. Its a dare. Impossible is nothing"

Driving down 75 south
As usual, we’re speeding
Down the interstate, going
Well above the speed limit,

Coming around the bend,
I notice, like always,
The gigantic structure
Looming ahead, to my left.

Church of the Apostles:
Where for girl scouts,
We had a meeting
In one of the many huge rooms,
And where at night,
It lights up
Like a light house,
So anyone can see it from far away.

Besides this one encounter,
With that big church,
I don’t know much about it,
And have never gone there on Sundays.

One thing remains though,
That whenever I head to school,
I see that great big church,
Coming to greet me,

While my life, may
Always be changing,
That place always stays the same,
Keeping the memories for
Whenever, I look at it.

Like days we leave
The house late,
With my mom pushing 80
When the speed limit’s 65,

Like the days
I automatically fall asleep in the car,
Because of staying up late
Watching my favorite TV shows,

Like the days
Where I’m telling
My dad, to drive faster,
So I won’t miss the dance,

Like that one day,
In third grade,
When I came to school late
Because I forgot my shoes,
And having my mom drive back home,
To give me the worst spanking
That kept me sore for a week,

And like today,
Where I drive past
Thinking of—
—These memories again.

I have two more years now,
Before I’ll stop passing by
My old friend,
But I’ll always remember—

—That Big Church.
